know it alls
This is a picture of “Lou and Lou: Safety Patrol.” It’s a show my sons watch on Disney. Actually, I’m not sure if it’s actually a show or not. I think it plays in between other shows and it acts as “filler” or at least some kind of public service announcement.
Lou and Lou are a brother/sister team that takes it upon themselves to keep others safe. While on the surface this may seem innocent, it’s actually incredibly obnoxious.
Lou and Lou have zero social skills and spend their episodes barging in on others and “keeping them safe” by sharing all of their “know-it-all” knowledge. I’m all for teaching kids to be safe, but this show does a better job showing kids how to develop an air of superiority over others.
You can view Lou and Lou in all of their haughty glory here. Click on the episode, “Play it Safe” to see them ignore an adult and boss around their sister and a nerdy kid at the playground.
I bring this up because tonight at dinner Parker informed Bethany: “Awwww….Mom, you have a safety violation: no talking with food in your mouth.”
After Bethany and I laughed a bit I looked over at Parker while I chewed some food.
“Good job, dad. You don’t have a safety violation because you’re not talking.”
They need to rename the show: “Lou, Lou and Parker: Agents of Everyone Else’s Business.”
